  • Career Progression Matrix
  • TZP has built a disciplined approach to internal talent management that clearly defines roles and expectations, and provides full transparency and mentorship to our employees to help them achieve their career goals.
  • Annual Objectives and Key Results Process
  • Everyone at the firm is responsible for different aspects of keeping the “TZP Machine” running and for driving efficiencies and continuous improvement across the platform. This ensures line-of-sight to our essential activities and enables effective tracking of our progress against our goals.
Portfolio Operations Group
We aim to provide owners and management teams with a set of value-added capabilities through a dedicated team of executives with track-records of successfully guiding private companies through the stages of ownership and transforming operating capabilities.
